Abstract

A career in surgery has always been a highly desired pathway for trainee doctors. However, cutbacks in training posts and limitations imposed on junior doctors as a result of the European Working Time Regulations mean that a surgical career is quickly becoming an even more intensely competitive (and somewhat daunting) pathway to embark upon. Are these factors discouraging medical graduates before they even embark on their foundation training?
